    The overall goal of the class is for students to establish a basic knowledge of how the library contributes to the larger organization and to be able to present that value in financial terms.  We hope that students/learners will follow up with their library's data, complete and submit their information to the Library Valuation Calculators in order to show the value of a larger number of libraries and to establish a benchmark for their performance.  The course content will include analyzing mission statements, reviewing data and statistical concepts, analyzing both qualitative and quantitative data and exploring different ways to inform the hospital management about the library's financial contributions.  Instructional methods include lecture, discussion, individual exercises.  Students should have a basic familiarity with library-generated data (usage, costs, and different services).

    We look forward to seeing you!

    Thank you,
    The MDMLG Professional Development Committee
